Entrez Gene Summary for EFCAB9 Gene

  • This gene encodes a protein with a C-terminal EF-hand calcium-binding domain similar to that found in penta-EF-hand (PEF) protein family members. The EF-hand is a helix-loop-helix structure with a canonical twelve-residue sequence that coordinates a calcium molecule with pentagonal bipyramidal symmetry. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2017]
